Digital technology is so intrinsic to our personal lives that we barely think
about the fitness trackers and smartphones that are as much a part of
us as the clothing we wear. For organizations, the shift to digital is more
disruptive and the stakes far higher. Digital transformation has been high
on the executive agenda for a few years and, for many, harnessing data
has become a significant force for value and revenue creation.
Agility has emerged as an organizational superpower as businesses
grapple with change and uncertainty in their own customer bases and in
the global political and economic landscape. IT has been thrust into the
spotlight as the unwitting hero of the story – tasked with delivering on
the digital vision, implementing all manner of applications and building
firm infrastructure foundations to support the latest digital initiatives.
In an increasingly on-demand world, it is this final point that often gets
overlooked in the rush for the next shiny new technologies. E
As more data becomes available and the demand for better health and fitness information increases, it’s clear that a solid API strategy is needed to integrate these disparate sources while protecting sensitive data.

Cognitive computing systems, with the ability to understand, reason and learn while interacting with human-generated data, enable providers to find meaningful patterns in vast seas of information. IBM Watson Health is leveraging the power of cognitive computing to help providers make data-driven decisions to improve and save lives worldwide, while controlling healthcare costs. Read our whitepaper and learn about the new era of cognitive computing and how it can improve health outcomes, optimize care and engage individuals in making healthy choices.

For many years, traditional businesses have had a systematic set of processes and practices for deploying, operating and disposing of tangible assets and some forms of intangible asset. Through significant growth in our inquiry discussions with clients, and in observing increased attention from industry regulators, Gartner now sees the recognition that information is an asset becoming increasingly pervasive. At the same time, CDOs and other data and analytics leaders must take into account both internally generated datasets and exogenous sources, such as data from partners, open data and content from data brokers and analytics marketplaces, as they come to terms with the ever-increasing quantity and complexity of information assets. This task is clearly impossible if the organization lacks a clear view of what data is available, how to access it, its fitness for purpose in the contexts in which it is needed, and who is responsible for it.
